INTEGRATING MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE CURRICULA

Essay

Introduction

Curriculum Integration begins with the idea that the sources of curriculum ought to be problems , issues , and concern posed by life itself . Integrated Mathematics designed to fill the needs both the teacher and the student . It uses a lesson approach that present learning experiences in a new context , making learning of Mathematics interesting and enjoyable to the students [banner_entry_middle]

p Science can provide rich content in reading and writing activities for students of all ages . Science inspires students to reach for the tools of language in to uncover and internalize the secrets about the world that only science can reveal to them

Integrating Science and Mathematics must be combined with language . Communications was the key to the rapid development of Science in the 17th century .One method of communication was publishing printed works , equally important were private letters

Unlike the Alchemists and Physicians who come down and strove to keep their work secret , scientist and mathematicians made efforts to share their theories and discoveries with one another . They benefited from the fact that there was a community of interested people who build on their works and correct their errors (Barzun , 2000

` Natural Fusion : Mathematics and Science Across The Curriculum

` Science and Mathematics : Through the Lens of language

According to Jennifer Stepanik

Reading and Writing are indispensable learning tools in all subjects areas , Teacher ‘s skillful use of language arts connections help students to make sense of mathematical and scientific ideas

The ability to communicate ideas and theories is essential to learning and doing mathematics and science . The boundaries between science , mathematics , and language are much more fluid than they appear in most school schedules . Reading is a part of every science and mathematics classroom in which the teacher uses a textbook . Connecting language arts with mathematics and science explicitly and intentionally strengthens the teaching and learning in all three areas of the curriculum

At the elementary level , integrating science and language arts has many advantages . The intense political focus on reading and mathematics can often mean that science gets pushed aside . The demands on schools and teachers to devote time and resources to reading and mathematics may leave little time for science

This emphasis is reinforced by state and districts tests that rarely include science (Their , 2002 . Elementary teachers themselves maybe reluctant to spend much time on science because they feel they lack the necessary content knowledge and experience to teach science effectively (Baker Saul , 1994 ) Student attitudes and beliefs about what they learn and about themselves are important aspects of the learning process , literature can help students connect personally to mathematical and scientific ideas by setting math and science in familiar and meaningful contexts (Griffiths Clyne , 1991
